I have had Chief 540/625s for a year now, just change oil and add gas. Tommy and the crew are great.

Nauti Kitty and Primal Instinct just ran the smoke on the water poker run this weekend with 4 950's and hauled the mail all weekend. We never let up all day saturday and they purred like the well oiled machines they are. Tommy's motors are as good as it gets and he personnally is the best, period. NK

Thanks NK! Reliability is very important to us. How many hours do you have?

Tommy is a great guy to work with and as far as I have heard his motors are great.

I had two Chief blower motors in my Cig and loved them so much I put three in the Black Thunder. Add fuel and change the oil, that's it!!! The best thing is you're doing business with great people.

Tommy says good for 200 before going through the top end. Pretty damn good for 950 hp! NK

BTW 90 and counting.

Like NK said, we ran the snot out of them all day at SOTW as well as a little 50 mile fun run we did the day before and a full day of boating on Sunday. Only maintenance needed was a quart of oil at the end of the weekend.

Tommy and everyone at his shop have been knowledgeable, friendly, consciencious and honest in all of my dealings with them. Tommy also went above and way beyond and took care of me prior to a Key West run last November. Can't say enough good things about his first class operation.

We're already over 100 hours on the engines. Time flies when your having fun!!

Thanks OSO. I couldn't remember much about the thread but you're exactly right, I remember now. I think at least one or two people are assuming I'm bashing Chief Engines but if they would just read a little closer and pay more attention they would see that I'm not at all, just stating what I had read. I just didn't remember that parts had been swapped, so you're right, that doesn't have anything to do with Chief at all.

If you did not remember about the parts being swapped, then you should have used discretion when making any false accusations. Sorry my friend if
I`m a little upfront because I dont protect many people unless I know them well, I know Tommy well enough to go against anyone trying to bash him or his operation.

I never bashed him, I just stated that someone else had.
